Upcycled from bicycle tubing, each shape in these earrings is hand cut from inner tubes to create simple charcoal grey silhouettes. The ear wire is sturdy hypoallergenic surgical steel, while the jump rings the are stainless steel (which won't tarnish).

The used bicycle inner tube comes from from local bike shops and is always scrubbed clean before use. Bicycle inner tube is a wonderful material - very light - with the look of leather.

Each earring measures almost 2 3/4" long from the top curve of the ear wire to the bottom tip.

FAQ

Is the inner tube clean?
Yes, I scrub it with soap and water.

Does inner tube smell?
Not really. There's only a faint rubbery smell. You really have to hold it right up to your nose to notice it.
